Outstanding Build Quality. Fast to focus when not using close up. Nicely Balanced and not front heavy. Insects don't see you coming.

Excellent build quality, very good picture quality.

Heavy lens that is not very portable. No image stabilisation, so more suited to use with a tripod.

P, Penrith

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Accurate smooth focus ring, very quiet and does not hunt like the 105 mm lens. Finish is good but course looking. It is a little heavy but then it is a 150 mm prime.
Bad points:
The knob on the tripod ring is big and clumsy.

Good points:
Amazing image quality, very solid, full metal body, complete package
Bad points:
Quite Heavy
OS is not as smooth and silent as canon IS implementation, but well, quite effective nonetheless.

Steve, Lincs

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Image quality is absolutely brilliant, very sharp defineatly on par with Canon 100 2.8 which I also own. This lens allows a little more breathing space between the Camera and a flighty Insect / Butterfly. I also like the Lens Tripod support which has a clever quick release system. A great Lens that tends to stay on my Camera instead of the Canon 2.8
Bad points:
3 different Lens distance settings take a bit of getting use to and the Lens tends to hunt if you don't get it right, the delay can cost you a Shot when it is locking on to subject. Having used it a few times I feel much happier with which setting to use. Don't let this put you off it just takes a little practice. A great lens.

Good points:
I am not a professional photographer and need to experiment with the camera body (Canon) to get superb results. The lens is definitely excellent.
